It was with great sadness that we learnt last week that one of our original working party volunteers has passed away.
Maureen Roberts was a lovely lady who helped regularly at our working parties with a zest for life she was a pleasure to have around. Maureen worked with the young people who used to come and loved to encourage them.
She would take on any task with her usual enthusiasm and gusto and would not stop until it was finished. She helped whenever she could to raise the profile of the cemetery group and whenever you saw her intown she could always enquire about members.
Maureen tended her own families graves in the Eastern Cemetery and would also tend a war grave in memory of her father.
She will be missed greatly by all who knew her RIP Maureen
